We are very pleased to have been an early catalyst in the resurgence of downtown Rockville Centre. Although we had a number of obstacles to overcome to bring this project to fruition, we were helped immensely by the support of Supervisor Kate Murray and the IDA’s Fred Parola. In the end, the effort was well worth it. We feel a strong sense of accomplishment and pride when we look at what these apartment homes have meant to the neighborhood: a more vibrant downtown, jobs, economic activity, and much needed homes for Long Island’s young professionals and empty-nesters. It’s building projects like this that make us feel so much a part of the very fabric of Long Island.”
